Combinatorics Capital Names Robert W. Jenkins CEO and Managing Partner

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 4, 2009) - Combinatorics Capital LLC, the New York-based global macro hedge fund manager, today announced the appointment of Robert W. Jenkins as CEO and Managing Partner.

Since 1998, Mr. Jenkins has headed F&C Asset Management plc, one of the oldest global money managers. During his tenure, first as CEO and then as Chairman, F&C was transformed from a venerable, privately held, UK-centric boutique into a pan-European, London Stock Exchange-listed competitor with assets under management exceeding $150 billion. Mr. Jenkins retired from F&C in May.

Prior to joining F&C, Mr. Jenkins ran trading rooms for Citibank in Dubai, Bahrain, Zurich and Tokyo. He then moved to the buy side with Credit Suisse Asset Management (CSAM) -- first as CIO and Head of CSAM's money management arm in Japan, and later as COO of that group's investment activities in the UK, Central and Eastern Europe.

Since 2007, Mr Jenkins has served as Chairman of the Investment Management Association, UK -- the principal trade body representing the asset management industry. He is a member of the UK Panel on Takeovers and Mergers and he co-Chairs, together with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, a task force on the future of the asset management industry in Great Britain. The task force's report is due out later this year.

Mr. Jenkins is an Executive Fellow at the London Business School where he lectures on asset management. He is currently residing in London. He will transition to New York in 2010.

Robert Jenkins said, "Combinatorics Capital has a proven track record and a great future. I am delighted to join such a talented team of professionals."

Welcoming the appointment, Junaid Rubbani, Founder and Managing Partner, said, "Robert Jenkins is a recognised leader in the asset management industry. We are delighted to have a professional of his calibre and credentials join us."
